Ore City ISD has EpiPens available for use on each campus through doctor's orders in the event of an anaphylactic emergency. These EpiPens are stored in a location that is accessible to staff at all times. OCISD staff is trained annually on food allergies, signs/symptoms of anaphylactic reactions, and on proper use and administration of EpiPens in an emergency.
